It's been a while....

Hello all.... It's been a while since my last post. I've been working through some health issues this year, and a lot of things have taken a back burner. Today I thought I would share a couple of cards that I made over the summer. One was made for my grandfather and the other was made for the wife of the pastor in the church where I grew up. It was interesting, because I didn't have many supplies on hand - only a pair of scissors, a small double-sided tape dispenser and some papers and stickers (no stamps or paper trimmer). The one I made for my grandfather is on the simple side, but I was quite happy with how the feminine card turned out.

On this first card, I used some scraps of paper, as well as stickers and alphabet stickers from two Simple Stories lines. As I mentioned, I didn't have much to work with, so I kept it simple. I think that it still looks nice, without seeming to little boyish - which I was really trying to avoid.

The second card, I used a 6x6 paper pad from Kaiser Craft. I really liked this paper - especially as it came with punch outs as well as papers. I used two of the papers, as well as a piece of  black corrugated paper from a 6x6 specialty pad by Hobby Lobby's in-house line of craft supplies. I also used stickers from a Simple Stories 12x12 alphabet stickers page and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins my cousin gave to me, as well as some wood veneer butterflies that she also gave to me. On the whole, I was quite pleased with how this card turned out. I had never used corrugated paper on anything before and I really liked the texture and dimension that it gave to the card.
